Today we wrap up our series on Building Online Community by talking about how, once the website is done and the geeky tools are put away, you lead this community so it's successful and positive.
We talk about how online communities are more grass roots than top-down and we warn you not to expect people to just fall in line and start using the grand site that you talk about. We chat about the importance and methods you can use for getting church staff and leadership on board and talk about how to lead and train people both online and off. MF keeps wanting to do some hand-holding which leads Rob to quickly move onto the topic of the important of patience when leading one of these web communities. We wrap up by talking about the excitement and long term commitment that are necessary if you want to build up your church community online.
Before all this, we remind you that registration is open for the Geeks & God Web 2.0 Conference and we notify you that the dates have been changed to July 24-26 (due to a venue conflict). We talk about your listener feedback, thereby keeping good on our new year's resolutions. Thanks for joining us for yet another fun filled episode!
